Another Name Poll

What do you think of Milo Anthony? If you don't like it, tell me why. (If this baby is a boy, I am set on Anthony as a middle name.) TIA!

ETA: We have a John-Paul, William, and Oliver. Do you think Milo fits? Or is it totally different?

I like it. It does make me think of Milo and Otis though-kid of the 80s what can I say lol. I think it would go just fine with your other kiddos names

Hmm, I actually kind of like the name Otis too, now that you mention it. But that makes me think of Otis elevators. And it sort of clashes with Oliver.

Thanks for the input!

I like it, but Milo is quickly rising in popularity, if that matters to you.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about that. I guess I am ok with sort of popular. But there's no telling just how common it might get in the future. I thought I was pretty unique with Oliver... but it turned out not so much.

Re: Another Name Poll

Hey you who voted no, come tell me why!

Seriously, knowing reasons helps me decide what to think of it.

This ^ I always associate it with as a "animal name", not for a person. But this up and coming generation will have forgot all about that movie. And for some reason the name together sounds familiar, but I can't figure out why?? Anthony is one of my all time favorite boy names though! I voted OK. For me Anthony redeems Milo.

I like Milo but not Anthony. I would be worried people might call him Tony. Not a fan but I do really like Milo!

We considered Oliver, I love it, but we ended up vetoing it because neither of us could live with the nickname Ollie.

I can totally see what you mean about the animal name thing. I guess it's something that parents might think of, but not his peers. Thanks for the input, this is why I am asking. Because I think I like the name, but I want to know what others think of when they hear it.

I think the name sounds familiar too but I can't figure out why either! It must sound like some other well known name... but I can't figure out what. Marc Anthony maybe???

Thanks for offering your reason. This helps me a lot. We almost never actually use or say middle names, except on a birth announcement. So I am 99% sure nobody would ever call him Tony or Anthony for that matter. Heck, my dad didn't even know what my kids middle names were the other day. He had completely forgotten. I don't actually like the sound of Tony or Anthony all that much myself, but I love St. Anthony and wanted to use the name to honor him as a middle name/patron saint.
